President Trump and the Future of US-Asia Relations: A View from the West Coast
Event: Tuesday, March 7, 2017, San Francisco
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Registration begins at 6:00 pm
World Affairs Auditorium
312 Sutter Street, Suite 200
San Francisco, CA
Join The Asia Foundation, Asia Society, Commonwealth Club, and World Affairs for a unique conversation featuring the leaders of four of the Bay Area’s most prestigious public affairs and non-profit organizations, who will look at the presidency of Donald J. Trump and what it will mean for America’s relationship with Asia and the world.
Held within the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, the dialogue will examine how the Bay Area, and the state more broadly, views America’s relationship with Asia, as well as its place in the world on global issues such as trade, security, and climate change. What are some of the primary issues of importance to the Bay Area—politically, economically, culturally—as it relates to US-Asia relations and are they similar or different from the rest of the country, and why?
